Summer is here and it's happening. There is sparkly pink nail polish on my toes, a Stephanie Plum book in my lap, and I am in love with June... especially the last four days of
funnel cakes and sunburns vacation spent at home, eating giant bags of salty-sweet kettlecorn for breakfast, seeing my family, and working at the arts & craft show in our hometown summer festival with my dad. Isn't he crafty? He makes all those wooden toys and pens. I just put sprinkles of things and feel creative.
But now it's almost July and it's time to get serious about this thing. Time to bake in red, white, and blue, put booze in your popsicles, and stay up late watching True Blood. Since I've been baking a lot of already-blogged recipes lately, it's only logical I share some of my old and new favorites with you. Here are my top summery picks. Add some sugar to your summer!
